USF Hockey / Gun Music
For 25 years, the USF Ice Bulls have been playing hockey in relative anonymity, because of both financial and location issues. University Beat on WUSF TV introduces you to a small group of student-athletes who make tremendous sacrifices, all for the love of the game.
You’ve heard the phrase “turning swords into plowshares.” Artist Pedro Reyes embraces that concept by taking firearms that had been confiscated and rendered useless by the Mexican army and turning them into musical instruments. Now, to kick off its celebration of 25 years of socially conscious art, USF’s Contemporary Art Museum is welcoming Reyes for a theatrical performance addressing issues of gun violence Thursday, January 23rd. We’ll have a preview on this week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7.
